Brodie b Team pro Joanna Petterson got an early season invite to represent her native South African Cycling Federation at the World Championships in Scotland later this summer. A resident of Hawaii, the South African born rider does most of her racing in North America, where sheâ€™s the reigning NORBA 4X champion.
In whatâ€™s becoming a familiar sight, Petterson found her way to the podium two more times this past weekend at the NORBA stop in Deer Valley, UT. Petterson beat Brodie teammate Jackie Harmony in the small final for a 3rd place finish in Dual Slalom. She then capped the weekend with a 4th place podium finish in DH despite a pretty big crash mid-course that among other things broke her finger. Since Sea Otter, her first races back from injury, Petterson has been on the podium in every single race this season.
The next stop for Petterson is the World Cup in Mt. Ste. Anne, PQ.
